Overview

When the tiny burgh of Keighley lands the rights to host the annual British hairdressing championships, practically every city in the United Kingdom is represented in the competition -- except Keighley itself. It seems the event is team-oriented, and the only suitable local contestants had a huge falling out a decade ago. For Brian Josh Hartnett, the son of two hairdressers, that falling out had personal consequences: His mother Shelley Natasha Richardson left his father Phil Alan Rickman to take up with Phil's hair model Sandra Rachel Griffiths. Since then, former styling champ Phil has settled for training Brian to help run his lowly barber shop, while Shelley and Sandra have opened a salon of their own. But when Shelley learns that she has terminal cancer, she reaches out to her family in hopes that a reunion for the hairdressing contest might help them all find some sense of closure. To complicate matters, Phil's old arch-nemesis, Ray Bill Nighy, is now a two-time champ looking for a three-peat, and he's brought along his beautiful American daughter Christina Rachael Leigh Cook to work on his team. Blow Dry also marks the screen debut of supermodel Heidi Klum.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
It's fun.... Rickman is fabulous and so is Richardson. The kids are all right. Nighy makes a great comic villain; as a dowdy mayor seduced ever so incrementally into the glam stylings of high-hair culture, Warren Clarke is continually funny. And Heidi Klum alone will melt the snows of yesteryear.

    Great Alan Rickman film!!

    This is classic Alan Rickman. And his performance easily makes up for whatever minor flaws the rest of the film may have. Quirky, humorous, and very fun to watch -- especially if you enjoy poking fun at the highly commercialized fashion industry.

    Blow Dry

    I thought this movie wasn' as funny as it was supposed to be. I thought that Josh Hartnett would've been great, but I didn't really like it, epecially his fake British accent. I'm kinda disappointed that I bought it, actually.
